This cookbook, published in 1996, grew out of the annual Taste of Columbia events held to raise scholarship funds for students living in the first residence hall on the South Loop campus that opened in 1993. The residence hall had apartment style spaces with kitchens and since "students need to eat and sleep before they can study" this book was produced to make sure students ate more than vending machine meals. The resulting cookbook contains recipes compiled from students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, friends, and others in the Columbia College Chicago community. The cookbook contents include recipes for appetizers, breads, main dishes, salads and side dishes, and desserts. 98 pages.
